Performing Arts Ambassadors

DPAC has selected 20 passionate students across Durham County to become ambassadors for performing arts at DPAC. Through this program, high school students will be exposed to the diversity of what is offered at DPAC and get a behind the scenes look at the industry.

As the face of DPAC, participants will volunteer at events and work as social media ambassadors. Ambassadors will attend events throughout the year and document their experiences online with blog posts and social media updates. Take a look at the blog by clicking here!

Ambassadors may even participate in master classes and workshops, or get the chance to go behind the scenes. Each of these unique experiences will help them learn the importance of supporting the arts—and prepare them for playing a big part in the professional world.
